  1. My sisters GTI water pump failed with low flow. It jammed closed, usually they leak. Over heating just started one day.
  2. Mk8 golf owners could stick then to the dash and pretend they had buttons again.
  3. My brothers Audi had this. I replaced the part which fixed it. Was fairly easy to do. About £35 if I remember right.
  4. I bought this one https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01GO4ZXJ8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 seems to work ok. Tried it on my previous mk7 and the current one. Both very new <1k miles. Most panels are ~130-140 microns, I think bonnet was higher at ~160 and inner panels are the lower ones like sills e.t.c around the ~90. Doesn’t measure plastic, but then plastic doesn’t rust. All the mk7s I tested were all virtually the same. It does take a nice square press on the panels. And came with calibration metals to test it.
  5. Dealer broke it, while ragging it down the road after the dealer fiddled with it. The dealer should fix it.
  6. Yeah, I just priced one up they charge you all of the cost of the options no wonder most lease cars are poverty spec. Let’s not give them options they could keep to help influence the value later. You have selected a 36 month Personal contract hire deal with an initial rental of £4355.29 inc VAT and 35 further monthly rentals of £362.94 inc VAT This contract has an annual mileage allowance of 8000 miles, if you exceed the total contract mileage then excess mileage charges may apply. You will be responsible for all scheduled servicing, maintenance & tyres of t
  7. Surely the don’t charge you all the cost of the options it’s not like you get to keep them when the lease expires, surely it’s a percentage of the cost of the extras.
  8. I have used this https://www.carparts4less.co.uk/p/poorboys-super-swirl-remover-ssr-1-0-473ml-552999090?gclid=CjwKCAjw3pWDBhB3EiwAV1c5rPtcIYxFQecITYczYX10NM3kJ1mu-pl1y_k9pGZEZpLZibZjODwj4xoCpUYQAvD_BwE and the medium version with a machine polisher no issues.
  9. Mine did this when VW changed the plugs took two more attempts to fix it. They claim the replaced the coil pack boots. They didn’t replace the coil packs as I marked them with UV dots, they did move them around multiple times.
  10. When mine broke you could get the TC light to come on with full beans from a stand still in the dry. Even easier in the wet. When it works ok it is exceptionally rare in either condition.
  11. Black I hate cleaning black, I want Limestone grey again.
  12. That looks so nice. It’s a great colour Lapiz Blue, have you noticed the mk8 doesn’t have head light washers?
  13. Congrats on the mk8, looks good. Is this the forum 1st?
  14. Is that overspray on the wheel too? Or just a reflection?
